School and work have started again after a two week break and so I haven’t had much time for blogging. This is a quick update on the body makeover that I keep hoping will happen more by positive confession than my disciplined behaviour!!! I keep telling myself that I am thin and beautiful, but somehow I have an evil bathroom mirror that I am confronted with every morning when I shower – you know the kind I mean – similar to those mirrors you get at carnivals that make you look short and REALLY wide!! No all joking aside, I have found it very difficult to buy healthy choices on a small food budget and so it has been difficult but I shall persevere. I have managed to lose about a kilogram and a half over the last couple of weeks and that is with minimal exercise. I am hoping to up the exercise level but finding dark winter mornings are not helpful. I have not posted any recipes as they have not been particularly healthy – I have managed to lose the bit of weight by cutting down my portion sizes, eating every 4 hours (a small amount to keep my blood sugars stable), and cutting down on my bread consumption. So that is my wisdom for tonight – as it is almost midnight and I am typing in the dark next to a restless toddler who has woken up for the third time already tonight, I don’t guarantee that it will make much sense. May I get some sleep tonight PLEASE!!!!
